Local sport profile

The Local Sport Profile provides councils with a profile of up-to-date data for their local area, covering sports participation, facilities, health, economic and demographics, all in one place.

Updated annually, it is a useful tool for local authorities and other partners working in community sport, which can be used to inform strategic planning and development of sporting opportunities and demonstrate the value of sport. The tool also presents benchmarking opportunities by providing useful regional, national and nearest neighbour comparators.

The tool was first published in Autumn 2010, and has been updated in March/April of each year, maintaining its currency.
